Do i need to keep taking Septrin?
I started HIV treatment 3 months ago. I am also taking septrin. Do i need to keep taking that?
Septrin is often given to people a as prophylaxis. This means it is used top prevent other infections. It is often given to people who have HIV.
People are often given it if their CD4 count os lower, under about 200. The stepson helps your immune system fight off infections and the illnesses.
If you do not know why you are taking the Septrin and you CD4 count is high you should ask your doctor or clinic. They will be able to let you know if you need to carry on taking it.
